Planning a wedding in the Byron Bay and Gold Coast region can be overwhelming because there are just SO many amazing vendors to choose from. That's why I've carefully hand picked five of my absolute favourite florists for you to choose from.
1. Flowers by Julia Rose
images sourced from Julia Rose website,
WHAT: Julia Rose is a highly experienced floral artist who not only creates amazing bouquets, installations and arrangements for weddings, but also floral gowns and sculptures for fashion campaigns and the runway. She lives on her own flower farm with her partner, dog and pet birds. In addition to all this, Julia creates her own natural essential oil products as well as teaching floristry at Gold Coast Tafe...sheesh!
WHY: Just take a look at her website, it kinda left me speechless. This lady clearly has talent and a passion for what she does. You'll see what I mean...

WHY: You just can't go past a mother/daughter business, especially when they're as creative as these two. Bower Botanicals creations struck me as really having a unique look found nowhere else.

WHAT: The Posy Collective are a Tweed Valley florist owned by the lovely Kylie. She fell into floristry at the same time as she entered motherhood, which I find just so beautiful. Kylie is inspired by her love for contemporary art, texture, unstructured floral design and simplicity.
WHY: Whether bright and fun, or classic and romantic, The Posy Collective's arrangements have a certain nostalgic beauty to them. Kylie is such a pleasant human to deal with and she is intent on creating your dream piece.
